picJuly and August saw Marvel charging $3.99 for 19 pages of actual story.

While it was only one each month, Ultimate Fallout #2 in July and Moon Knight #4 in August, 40% of the comics priced at $3.99 saw less than 22 pages (27 out of 67 $3.99 comics).

And none had more than 25 pages.

On the other side, DC's New 52, which is still holding the line at $2.99, saw 20 pages, and their $3.99 price tag brought around 30 pages.

The numbers are via Bleeding Cool, and as they mention, I suppose a good story is still a good story, right?
